The ultimate test of any performance car is running at the famous Nurburgring in Germany, where the ZL1 recently logged a lap time of 7:41.27. To put things in perspective, the fastest time is 6:48.00 in a pseudo race car: the Radical SR8LM. A ZR1 Corvette falls into 9th place with a 7:19.63. The ZL1 Camaro slots into the 40th spot, a touch slower than a Porsche 911 Carrera S and a bit faster than a 911 GT3. Most notable is that none of those cars comes close to the ZL1’s $55,000 sticker price. In case you’re curious, a Camaro SS ran the course in 8:20.00, which landed it in 152nd place. We heard that Ford ran the new GT500, but instead of lap times, all we’ve gotten is the sound of crickets.
